Re: Concerning the Flood's survival

In Response To: Re: Concerning the Flood's survival (davidfuchs)

: Humanity was basically set up as the inheritors of the Forerunner's legacy.
: That wasn't a fate everyone liked (Didact) but it's one that came to pass
: via the IsoDidact and Librarian. The recent Catalog posts on Waypoint
: suggest that only certain humans actually can act as Reclaimers, which
: implies the mechanism is via the genetic encoding the Librarian futzed
: with in humans.

Guess Truth and Tartarus got really lucky with Miranda being one of those humans. I wonder if Tartarus found it odd that they needed a human to activate Halo, when they're vermin in the eyes of the Covenant.. I know the Prophets know the truth about humans and just cover it up.

: Keeping the Flood in stasis was a gamble, but the Halos can not only nuke
: stuff not in containment, they can vent and destroy parts of themselves or
: even the whole ring if necessary to stop the spread of the Flood.

Yeah, I remember this from CEA, but that begs the question: Why didn't 343GS then vent the parts of the ring that the Flood had escaped from? It seems like he's either an idiot for not doing so, or the Flood can survive in space making the venting of parts of the ring useless.
